100 Heartbreaks

book, lyrics, & music by Joanna Garner

independent production | Winter  2014

Working with fellow MFA candidate Joanna Garner, we staged a workshop production of her honky-tonk play with music in a real live Austin music venue. This was my first opportunity to collaborate on a play with music, and I was fortunate to work with a genius musical director and excellent cast of musicians. Learn more about the show here.
